How To Ride a Motorcycle in a Crosswind

By Walter F. Kern

Here's How to Ride in a Crosswind:

  1. Relax your grip on the motorcycle handlebars.
  2. Keep your head up.
  3. Let the motorcycle correct itself. You don't have to fight it or 'white-knuckle it.'

Tips:

  1. Sudden gusts are the worst. Just relax your grip.
  2. Steady winds such as encountered on the Plains just require fortitude to continue on.
  3. If there is a lot of oncoming traffic, consider riding in the right tire-track.
